Duo combine for celebration of AONB
TWO artists working in different media have collaborated on an exhibition to celebrate the landscape and wildlife of the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Beauty (AONB).
Capturing Moments in the Upper Dale, by fibre artist, Chrissie Day, and photographer, Martin Rogers, is on show at the North Pennines AONB Partnership’s Bowlees Visitor Centre throughout June and July.
Chrissie’s rich, experimental textiles have been displayed across the world, but her creativity is inspired by the area around her studio and home in Harwood-in-Teesdale.
Martin Rogers, author of Essential Teesdale, lives in Middleton-in-Teesdale and his photography captures landscapes and wildlife throughout the year.
The images chosen for the exhibition reflect the colours, textures and views used in Chrissie’s work. Mr Rogers said: “We are lucky enough to live in one of the most beautiful parts of Britain, where the flowers and bird life in particular are especially rich and varied. The landscape is often stunning, both shaped and managed by man – but retaining its underlying natural qualities.”
Capturing Moments in the Upper Dale is open daily during June and July, from 10am to 5pm, in the gallery space at Bowlees Visitor Centre.
